    On Monday, 27th Dec 2010, Rahul Dravid became the first cricketer to take 200 Catches in Test cricket during the 2nd India-South Africa Test at Durban when he took a stunning catch at slip of Dale Steyn. Dravid took a full-length dive to his left and held a one-handed stunner, landing behind wicket-keeper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, with the ball almost flying past his outstretched fingers. Dravid, with 149 Tests, is at the top the list of the most number of catches in Test cricket. Former Australian opener Mark Waugh is at No. 2 with 181 catches from 128 Tests, followed by Australian skipper Ricky Ponting (174). Dravid who is nicknamed as "The Wall" for his work with the Bat is also known for his safe pair of hands behind the stump at slip. He has also been a handy Wicket-Keeper for the Indian ODI side for some time and played a major role in success of spinners like Anil Kumble and Harbhajan Singh's for more than 10 years. Dravid with a total of 12,025 runs in 149 matches holds 3rd position in the list of top run-scorers in Tests.

    Celebrated Indian batsman, Rahul Dravid, overhauled Mark Waughs world record of 181 catches in Test cricket.Dravid achieved this feat on day three of the third Test between India and New Zealand. He caught Tim McIntosh off Zaheer Khans bowling, the first Kiwi wicket to fall in the second innings. This was Dravids 182nd Test catch. Dravid, standing at third slip was quick to dive forward and low to his left to take a brilliant catch, as Zaheers good length out-going delivery induced an edge off the bat of McIntosh. After holding on to the ball, the 36 year old was bubbling with emotions as he kissed the ball and celebrated animatedly with his teammates with the enthusiasm of a young kid.The stylish batsman, later in the innings, added one more to his kitty as he pouched Jesse Ryder at first slip off the bowling of Harbhajan Singh. This was catch number 183 for the Great Wall of India.Indias best slip fielder, now, sits pretty on the records table, as Ricky Ponting, the next highest catcher in Tests among the current lot of players is 35 catches away from him with 148. The Sri Lanka captain Mahela Jayawardena is third on the current players list with 142.In one-day cricket too, Dravid has established himself as one of the safest hands in cricket, as he stays put on the 8th position with 121 grabs which is 38 less than the highest.

  • Muttiah Muralitharan's 800 Test wickets

    At the start of his final Test, he was eight wickets short of entering territory that no other cricketer had. He began his last day in Test cricket needing two, and took one. His partner threatened to take everything else and he could do nothing but keep on bowling, and wait. The umpire denied him a palpable lbw. VVS Laxman, who kept him at bay for so many hours, ran himself out and there was only one wicket left to take. He waited and perhaps even fretted. He nearly ran out the last pair himself, twice. After 23 wicketless overs, with perhaps growing doubt about whether it would come at all, the moment arrived, and Muttiah Muralitharan was there, where no man had gone before. The long wait for the 800th wicket only exemplified the toil that went into the preceding 799. And by the way, Sri Lanka won his farewell Test too, by ten wickets for the seventh time. The script had tinges of romance and fiction. Lasith Malinga nearly didn't allow Murali to get to 800. The Indian tailenders refused to relent, and it also threatened to rain. The real fight for the match, though, had ended in the first over of the day, when Malinga yorked MS Dhoni with a reversing outswinger. The ball seemed to drift towards leg but straightened at the last second to beat a clueless Dhoni and clatter into the stumps. Would Malinga knock out the tail before Murali got his two wickets? By design or otherwise, Kumar Sangakkara stepped in and removed Malinga from the attack after only three overs. Murali is 38. The wrists aren't as supple as they once were, the old fizz was certainly missing, the shoulder aches and the knees creak when he pivots. Yet he still produced magical deliveries and took a five-for in his last Test. On the fourth day, he removed Dhoni with a magical offbreak and twice made Yuvraj Singh look like a tailender. Today, he didn't have to do anything special and just remain patient. The temptation to produce something magical, something unplayable to reach the landmark would have been there but he didn't show it. Murali kept delivering offbreaks, the occasional doosra and varied his pace and trajectory. Fielders crowded the bat, appeals were made and Murali trapped Harbhajan Singh in front. Abhimanyu Mithun offered unexpected resistance and time wore on. Malinga stayed out of the attack. India took the lead. Murali changed ends. The photographers kept clicking every time Murali bowled a ball and ran from end to end for better views. The television cameras continued to do extreme close-ups. Then it happened. Malinga eventually returned to knock out Mithun with an inswinging yorker. Barring a delivery that was pushed well outside off, Malinga was on target ball after ball but Laxman and Ishant Sharma stood firm. He did the same when he returned to bowl at the last pair Ishant and Pragyan Ojha. It felt right. Malinga bowling wides might have seemed like he was giving Murali time. It was also slightly alarming. What if Malinga took both wickets and Murali ended on 799? Perhaps there would be a touch of romance in that, if it happened, like the last-innings duck that left Bradman with an average of 99.94. Sangakkara opted for the new ball, and Murali very nearly made his tryst with destiny. A ripping off break from round the stumps had Laxman in front but umpire Daryl Harper didn't budge. Perhaps he thought it was missing leg stump.There was more nail-biting drama after lunch. And just when the fans watching began to fear it would not come, it did. Ojha edged a flighted offbreak to slip where Mahela Jayawardene grabbed his 77th catch off Murali's bowling. Murali roared, his team-mates hoisted him on their shoulders, his wife and mother jumped out of their seats, the crowd cheered and the fireworks exploded. All seemed well with the world.

    The Ball of the Century, also referred to as the Gatting Ball or simply That Ball, is the name given to a cricket delivery bowled by Australia's Shane Warne to England's Mike Gatting. The event occurred on day two of the first Test of the 1993 Ashes series, which took place at Old Trafford, Manchester. The ball looks as if it is a wide ball, but the magic of Warne works there.

    Sachin Tendulkar became the first player to score 50 centuries in crickets elite Test format as he led Indias resistance against South Africa.The 37-year-old right-hander, the leading run scorer in Tests and one-day internationals, brought up his latest hundred on the fourth day of the first Test in Centurion as India battled to save the match. Tendulkar raised his bat and looked to the sky after reaching triple figures. Its the fourth major milestone this year for Tendulkar at the stage of his career when batsmen typically decline.

    Virendra Sehwag, one of the finest cricketers that India has ever seen is a person who was seen as a replacement to Sachin Tendulkar. Entirely proved to his critics why he was compared to Sachin. Virendra Sehwag completely dominated the proceedings in Chennai Test Match. For the second time in his career, Sehwag reached triple century in Test Cricket, the first time was against the Arch-rivals Pakistan in Multan.he Sultan of Multan achieved the feast once again in his country. In the first Test Match against South Africa Viru stormed the South African bowling attack and piled 319 runs. The highest and the quickest run by an Indian batsman in Test Cricket. Virendra Sehwag has not been in a great form recently. His credibility in the team was subject to question mark. The Indian selectors were looking at a younger team. As a result of that Viru was not included within the playing XI in the earlier CB Series. Virendra Sehwag has given a right answer to his critics and has proved his ability to perform and to adopt any condition. The Selectors must understand Virendra Sehwag‚??s ability to play such outstanding knocks. It was the senior players like Viru and Dravid who saved the Test Match in Chennai. Having a vision for the future Team, the squad selection must be constructed with the feasibility of the present scenario. The Selectors must pick experienced campaigners as well as give opportunities to deserving youngsters.
